Rapid changes in modern medicine along with advances in the science of learning and memory have necessitated a shift in the way physician knowledge is assessed. Physician recertification beyond initial certification has historically consisted of retaining large amounts of knowledge over a long time span. The adult learning theory has shown that the maintenance and improvement of our knowledge base is more effective by being exposed to new concepts at regular intervals throughout one's career and reinforcing these concepts on an ongoing basis...

Owing to rapid generation in body, the metabolites of etomidate softdrug are able to accumulate in either the brain or periphery and subsequently affect the recovery from anaesthesia or cause corticosteroid suppression. This study was designed to investigate the ability of two etomidate analogues (ET-26, ET-42) with inactive metabolites to provide anaesthesia with lesser corticosteroid suppression. The 50% effective dose (ED50) of ET-26, ET-42, Etomidate, MOC-ET (an etomidate softdrug) and CPMM (an improved etomidate softdrug) required to induce anaesthesia intravenously in Beagle dogs were 1...

Most cases of Alzheimer's disease (AD) are sporadic, while a small percentage of AD cases, called familial AD (FAD), are associated with mutations in presinilins 1 and 2 and the amyloid precursor protein (APP). APP mutations falling within the Aβ sequence lead to a wide range of disease phenotypes. There is increasing evidence that distinct amyloid structures distinguished by amyloid conformation-dependent monoclonal antibodies have varying roles in pathology. It is possible that the phenotypic diversity of FAD associated with mutations within the Aβ sequence is due to differences in the conformations adopted by mutant Aβ peptides...

They are a commonly used method of assessment during our early didactic training (graduate school, residency and board certification). They are used throughout our MOC process both in SAMs and online CE. And they are used for the MOC exam every 10 years. While we have significant training in answering these multiple choice questions, we rarely receive training in how to construct effective multiple choice questions...

AIM: To evaluate the impact of a structured model of care (MOC) prepared for resource-constrained settings, on the pregnancy outcomes of Asian Indian women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). METHODS: Pregnant women were screened under the Women in India with GDM Strategy (WINGS) MOC for GDM using the International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups criteria. Women with GDM went through a structured MOC that included medical nutrition therapy (MNT), regular physical activity (PA); and insulin when indicated...

BACKGROUND: All malignant tumors may spread throughout the pleural, peritoneal, and pericardial cavities. The presence of tumor cells in serosal fluid is a poor prognostic indicator. It may be difficult to differentiate nuclear atypia of mesothelial cells due to injury of serosal surfaces from mesothelioma or malignant epithelial tumor cells. Epithelial and mesothelial immunohistochemical markers can be used in such conditions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression of two immunohistochemical markers (MOC-31 and EZH2) in serosal effusions...

BACKGROUND: In patients with mild to moderate Parry-Romberg syndrome (PRS), plastic surgeons have mainly focused on the restoration of soft tissue deficiencies. While, bone deficits are easily overlooked. This study developed a new method combines the autologous mandibular outer cortex (MOC) grafting with fat grafting in mild to moderate patients with PRS, and apply computer-assisted techniques to improve the surgical outcomes and accuracy. METHODS: Seven patients with mild to moderate PRS were prospectively enrolled in the study...

A comprehensive study of acetylene adsorption on δ-MoC(001), TiC(001) and ZrC(001) surfaces was carried out by means of calculations based on periodic density functional theory, using the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof exchange-correlation functional. It was found that the bonding of acetylene was significantly affected by the electronic and structural properties of the carbide surfaces. The adsorbate interacted with metal and/or carbon sites of the carbide. The interaction of acetylene with the TiC(001) and ZrC(001) surfaces was strong (binding energies higher than -3...

BACKGROUND: To assess the impact of (68) Ga-(HBED-CC)-PSMA (Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen) PET/CT in the clinical management of PCa patients with rising PSA after treatment with curative intent. (68) Ga-PSMA PET/CT scan is a novel molecular imaging technique in the field of prostate cancer (PCa). METHODS: 131 consecutive patients were referred to our center for a (68) Ga-PSMA PET/CT in the setting of recurring prostate cancer. 11/131(8%) presented persistent PSA after radical prostatectomy, while 120/131 (92%) were referred for biochemical recurrence after surgery, radiotherapy or both...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: In 2000, the American Board of Medical Specialties implemented the Maintenance of Certification (MOC), a structured process to help physicians identify and implement a quality improvement project to improve patient care. This study reports on findings from an MOC Performance in Practice (PIP) module designed and evaluated by addiction psychiatrists who are members of the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP). METHOD: A 3-phase process was utilized to recruit AAAP members to participate in the study...

Human hearing sensitivity is easily compromised with overexposure to excessively loud sounds, leading to permanent hearing damage. Consequently, finding activities and/or experiential factors that distinguish "tender" from "tough" ears (i.e., acoustic vulnerability) would be important for identifying people at higher risk for hearing damage. To regulate sound transmission and protect the inner ear against acoustic trauma, the auditory system modulates gain control to the cochlea via biological feedback of the medial olivocochlear (MOC) efferents, a neuronal pathway linking the lower brainstem and cochlear outer hair cells...

CONTEXT: Curcumin, a naturally occurring polyphenol, has been extensively studied for its broad-spectrum anticancer effects. The potential benefits are, however, limited due to its poor water solubility and rapid degradation which result in low bioavailability on administration. OBJECTIVES: This study encapsulates curcumin in nanoliposomes including an integrin-homing peptide combined with a C end R neuropilin-1 targeting motif for targeted delivery and receptor-mediated internalization, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Bilateral stent-in-stent (SIS) self-expandable metal stent placement is technically challenging for palliation of unresectable malignant hilar obstruction. In the SIS technique, the uniform large cell type biliary stent facilitates contralateral stent deployment through the mesh of the first metallic stent. This study aimed to assess the technical success and clinical effectiveness of this technique with a uniform large cell type biliary stent. METHODS: Thirty-one patients who underwent bilateral SIS placement using a large cell type stent were reviewed retrospectively...
